They can create logical and creative solutions and glide through life's everyday problems, for the rest of their days.

This book teaches the reader how to identify his problems. (Know that this is NOT as easy as it seems. Generally, the "problem at hand" is not the problem at the root.)It teaches the reader to utilize both the LEFT and the RIGHT brain, to create strategic life hacks, and to engage in SELF HYPNOSIS to effectively initiate creative solutions. Furthermore, this book walks the reader through step-by-step problem solving solutions to classic relationship-based problems. Don't Allow Yourself to Falter from Your Dreams.
